Hodgkin lymphoma support tool
The Lyfe app is the first and only mobile application dedicated to supporting those with Hodgkin lymphoma. Reflecting its content and purpose, the name Lyfe is a combination of “lymphoma” and “life.” It is free and available for download from the App Store and Google Play.
One of the unique features of the Lyfe app is the Community section. It allows patients and support-givers to share their stories, ask questions and connect with others who are dealing with similar circumstances—locally, nationally and around the world.
Lyfe has insightful articles providing practical tips designed to help during all stages of the patient experience. It also includes information geared specifically to friends and family members who are providing help and support during this challenging time.
Some of the more popular topics are:
- Creating a support system and staying connected
- Dealing with emotions, anxiety, and stress
- Handling work-related issues
- Tips for daily living
The Lyfe app contains links to additional information and resources, including Lymphoma Coalition’s member patient organisations so visitors may find a local resource dedicated to them. Lymphoma Coalition hopes the Lyfe app will support HL patients and their care-providers through their experience.
Available in English and French.
